I’ve decided to start a new weekly newsletter that will come out every Sunday night with the purpose of informing the masses what is happening dance music related in the Boise area the upcoming week. I’ll also give a mini review about what happened the previous week. I’ll mention the events that are happening but also other dance music related news such as local artist releases etc. If you have an event or anything you’d like featured please contact me at: Tim@audiothril.com So without further ado: This week in Boise dance music:
The upcoming week is what I like to call Halloweekend; or rather the weekend closest to Halloween; which is typically one of the biggest party weekends of the year. This year we dance music fans in the Boise area have 3 nights in a row of great events. Please click the links and RSVP as well as buy pre sale tickets, it really helps us promoters be able to put on these events for you:
Thursday 10/26 FML Monster Bash at Fattys is the 2nd week of doing a fundraiser for Jeffrey Jensen who ran FML Thursdays at Fattys which was the longest running EDM weekly in Boise nightlife history. Jeffrey is currently battling cancer and we thought It’d be nice to help him raise some funds for medical bills. We do this with adult trick or treating: By donating $5 you get a trick or treat which could be a free drink, free tickets to future Audio Thrill and Konnexion Music Festival events, as well as gifts from our sponsors: CP Audio, Strongline Espresso, and Purple Lotus. For the music to get you dancing then some of Boise’s best Old school DJs have stepped up to play for the night with: Tony Krave vs. Tommie Sae, Jeremiah, Helix Protocol & Dudster(playing tracks Jeff gave him)
